When I try to compile this nice application, after ./configure when I run make, I get an error (reported below in detail). I have automake-1.9 installed (SuSE 10.0). I also found an workaround to the problem; just go to the src/ directory and then use make and make install.

Feature Request:
1. Configurable rotation speed. Currently its too fast.
2. Modify the ssm.desktop and add an icon and write the application name there
3. Configure option to change the size of the squre. It seems too big to me.

A new release for FTP Monitor is ready. I have fixed the bug that FTP Monitor will not update if ftp daemon in use was something other than pure-ftpd. I am just making sure that there are no more bugs this time when 0.80 is released.

Check the new release at - Dec 18 2005
Oh. I dont know a lot about mdk (I use SuSE). Anyways, default prefix is /usr/local/ so I guess you will need to do
./configure --prefix=/usr/local/kde/ - Mar 28 2005
Adding support for sftp is not easy (or may be not possible). All ftp-servers have a 'who' command (like pure-ftpwho, ncftpd_spy, ftpwho etc..), which can be used to find out who all are connected to server and what are they doing. My applet, ftpmonitor is just a graphical frontend to these 'who' commands. But no such monitoring tool exists for sftp servers. And hence extending FTP monitor for sftp will not be possible.

I guess, for mdk you need to compile with prefix=/opt/kde3/

./configure --prefix=/opt/kde3/
make install - Mar 28 2005
Yes, you need to install Qt-devel packages. All distros supply them, just use package manager (yast for suse, drakconf for mandrake .. ) and install qt-devel ackages. - Nov 18 2004
Yes, from output of ps -fe its clear that vsftpd is not supplying info about bandwidth, and hence ftp monitor can not show it.

vsftpd unlike other ftp daemons also don't provide any tool to monitor, so i dont think anything more can be done. (If anybody knows about some other way of doing it, comments are welcome).

May be you can use pure-ftpd for the time being, if you want ftpmonitor to display speed also. - Jul 04 2004
Can you just do a ps -fe | grep ftp and check if that displays speed etc. If that does, then its a bug in ftpmonitor. If ps -fe also does not display it, then ftpmonitor also can not as it uses ps -fe for displaying.
may be you can post some screenshot. - Jul 04 2004
Make sure that you set proctitle enable to yes in vsftpd.conf
For more details, see help at ftpmonitor webpage. - Jul 03 2004
ssh functionality is not available. Only FTP.

As far as speed is concerned, it does show speed. Which ftp daemon are you using? - Jul 01 2004
I have updated package to contain danish translations also. - May 01 2004
Proftpd support is now added to ftpmonitor (although i am still testing it).
You can download v0.44 from ftpmonitor homepage. - Apr 25 2004

The file ftpmonitor.pot is old pot file*for version 0.3, you will need to modify it a bit for 0.4).

Please have a look at and check if 0.41 works (i guess translations it will not work as there is some problem with makefiles). - Apr 22 2004
ProFTPd is not yet supported, but i will try to include its support in next release. But because I have my exams coming, this might take some time. - Apr 21 2004
I have included german translations and ftpmonitor.pot. You can dload latest version (0.32) from home page of ftpmonitor - Apr 13 2004

In open as root it starts a new konqueror as root, and opens specified dir. Usually style/theme used in root's account is different from those in users account and it dosen't look nice. Also all user settings are not there in this konqueror started as su. It would be nice if instead of starting new konqueror, it opens up in same konqueror window. - Mar 12 2004

I have seen many people misconfigure konqueror settings(may be coz of lots of options) and konqueror stops working(like one guy changed file association of directory, other changed default stylesheet). When a new user after playing with konqueror-config realize that he has done something wrong he is not able to find "Restore To Factory Defaults Button".
This applies to everything from konqueror to mobile that there should be a option that sets all *advanced options* to defaults. - Feb 09 2004
